I will also install some recommended plugins that will help keep your website safe, and an SEO plugin to help you further boost your website SEO. 

In regards to SEO – I will implement some basic things such as Headers, layouts, user experience, making sure it’s mobile friendly and optimizing image sizes – however, things like adding meta descriptions etc. will need to be added yourself, but this will be covered in the training too. 

Moving from another platform to WordPress

If you already have a website on another platform (e.g. WiX, Squarespace, Shopify etc.), we can move you over to WordPress. We will also arrange for your hosting to move from current platform to WordPress on an agreed date, at least 48 hours before your pre-booked date.

Please note, that this move will mean that you will no longer have access to your data or the content that is displayed on your current website, so please ensure you have screenshots, and copied and pasted any text you need and saved any images. We will not be able to restore your website after the migration has begun. 

Please note, we will also need information on any email address attached to your domain, so this can be taken into consideration when moving, otherwise your emails are at risk of being permanently lost.

Booking your date 

There are multiple dates from now until end of March 2024, where you can book your Website in a Day.

Once your booking has been made, this will be secured for you, and 100% of my attention will be on your website for that day. If you need reschedule your Website in a Day booking, this can be done, but please provide at least 48 hours notice, and £100 admin fee would be due for the reschedule. 

The website build will commence at 9am on your booking day, and within 24 hours your website will have been created using the content provided, and sent over to you for review, where you will have one round of amends for any changes to copy, images and basic design, which will need to be submitted back to me within 24 hours of receiving the website. 

I will make those changes ASAP (within 24 hours) for your site to be live and running. 

Please note, all efforts will be made to ensure your site is working as it should, however, due to time restraints, full testing of the site will not be possible, and during your round of amends, any issues you spot need to be raised then for me to be able to fix for you. 

Please also note, that whilst a website can be made in a day, we are still relying on technology, and if issues arise, beyond my control, your website may take slightly longer than 24 hours, however best efforts will be made to ensure that does not happen. If it does, please be assured, your website will be my top priority.
